My First Oil Painting by MonaParvin My First Oil Painting by MonaParvin
My first oil painting experiment :heart:

It was so much fun and I did really enjoy it. I had few oil colors that I tried to use on this painting I enjoyed the mixing a lot :)

I notice that unlike watercolor painting, this was harder to take photo because of reflective surface :giggle: So colors on skin are so washed out

All the critiques are welcome I like to know what and what not :D

Thank you for viewing my friends :love::blowkiss:

Oh my, I am so captivated by this painting! I am so proud of you for your first attempt, but not even surprised that it was this magnificent!

Since I do not paint with oils, (though I have always wished to, but lack the facilities) I don't know that I'm qualified to critique this, but I'm so in love with it, I want to share my opinions and feelings.

The colors are wonderful. I love the "pop" feel to it. I like how you have the blue in the face, tying it into the colors around the face. The bright colors surrounding the face are perfect, and very complimentary. I like how you did the the curved colors, then used the straight lines at the bottom indicating a neck, and the rest indicating hair. There is a nice sense of fluidity and motion here.

I am absolutely amazed at the detail on the eyes. They are so captivating! I simply cannot get over the superb quality of your detailing. The lips are another detail that really stands out. I love the gradient of color, and the lighting on them. The full rich shape of them give the face such a sultry feeling, and add to her beauty. The skin tones are wonderful.

I know the difficulties in capturing a good photo of a painting with a camera, and if this is that wonderful with a POOR photo, I can only begin to imagine how fabulous it must be to the real eye!

I sure hope this isn't your last attempt at oils. It seems EVERYTHING you do is wonderful, and this is no exception. I hope to see more oils from you in the future....
